Vertical Chess Board

The whole process of my Upcycling work started because of this project. The glass on a picture frame broke and we were certainly going to throw it away. But the wooden frame was in a very good condition and I thought I could definitely use it to do something. After a lot of consideration, I hit upon the idea of making a fancy chessboard with it. Now, the problem was that it was not square but rectangular so it challenged me even more. Finally, I decided I would make it a vertical standing board. This was a neat addition to our bar 😊
